Hi, All!

A few days ago, I saw a video that suggested that it's best for procrastinators to track BOTH successes and failures, so we keep a balanced view of where we are and don't slack off by concentrating only on the successes. I'm interested in experimenting with that, to find out if it makes a difference for me.

Ideally, I'd like to have "did well" and "could use improvement" columns in my check-in post, here. So I'm experimenting to see if it'll let me do that with HTML table codes. 

Did Well (or Well Enough)
Could Use Improvement
Smile experimental mindset/rsch in a.m. early rising
 scanning pass through job email prompt start to job work day
preliminary responses to mgr and u-mgr Qs willingness to resume job work after a break (but having a small task ready to do helped)  

Very Interesting, Keep us

Very Interesting, Keep us posted. Good Luck with your experimentation :-)

I've had a real drop in productivity the last few days. Need to get it back together...there's a lot of stuff that's been on my list for days and just hasn't gotten done.

However, today is going to be labmate is leaving and so we're going to spend a couple of hours celebrating her. So I need to be efficient in the time I have

*Today I MUST make reminder calls for appreciation day.
*I also need to check on expts and maybe collect if necessary
*I need to clean my bench, so I don't feel so disorganized and awful (mostly done)
*I need to submit for histology
*And I need to start SMF and do quick PAS staining on sections, so I can image tomorrow
*If I have time, I'd like to send 2 emails, do an order, and work on paper writing, and maybe start lit. review (lit. review microbursted)

Online Meeting PSA

There is an online meeting on Sunday April 29th, and as of right now, we don't have anyone signed up to lead.

Leading is VERY easy. It is mostly just copying and pasting. So anyone who thinks they can make it on Sunday can do it!

More information and sign up sheet here:

This is a great opportunity to be of service.

FYI, there is a business meeting AFTER the regular meeting but you are not obligated to lead that.

Thanks for the welcomes
